The Meaning of Abundance

Oftentimes folks get so caught up in themselves and the meaning of abundance that they cannot see what is in front of their face.  Abundance is not just about money, but about the overwhelming abundance of nature.

Saturday last, my husband planned on some target shooting with his son toward floating targets in the pond.  We’d had a week of relatives from Ohio in and they’d just left.  This was to be some great father and son time.  Only when they went to shoot, the spring on the 22 rifle was sprung.  Then they went and got another gun.  It didn’t work.  My husband decided that the Universe was saying something to him and put the guns down.  (I say a great big thank you to the many friends from the unseen realms that stopped them from shooting – the fairies and such that are so abundant here).  Instead he and his son talked for hours on the back of the truck under the huge oak.

Lo and behold, the very next day the answer as to why they couldn’t shoot became very clear.  Out in the pond, the newest additions to our ten-acre piece of heaven decided to make an appearance.  You can imagine our suprise when the two Canada geese that have been visiting us since 2003, brought their five baby goslings into the pond.  These goslings are about a week old.  They were born here, on our land.

To me this is abundance.  The Mother has graced us with a beautiful gift.  These wild geese “feel safe” on our land – safe enough to have this year’s babies.  Henceforth, these babies will migrate here to their own birthing grounds.

Nature is incredibly abundant and evidence of the remarkable well-being that is prevalent on this our home, earth.  Above you can see the does (only some of them that visit here) that leisurely, eat, rest, and ahem…

Another gift – our pair of mated red tail hawks.  I caught this one landing on top of one of the tallest pines on the ridge opposite our home after soaring through the sky with its mate – a courting dance as it were.  All of these photos have been taken from my deck.

We often mistake abundance to just mean “Money,” but it means much more than that.  Abundance is health, wealth, joy, and the time to experience it all, among many other things.  Nature is overflowing with abundance.

Take the time to go out into nature this week.  Sit quietly, you might be surprised at the gift you are given.  If you but close your eyes and listen you will hear the buzz of well-being.  When you look at what nature shows you – you will find that she is rich with well-being.  She is rich with peace.  She is rich with abundance.  It is every where  you look.

You just need to open your eyes. Be thankful. Be ongoing.

Abundance is everywhere.

Namaste.

Bob Proctor is an amazing man. I really do think so. When I saw him in The Secret and listened to him I was spellbound. This guy was definitely different. I thoroughly enjoyed when he took his hand and kissed it – saying he loved himself. That was a healthy move.

One of the problems we have in this world is that we don’t regard ourselves enough. I’m not talking about being an Egotist. I’m talking about fully loving and appreciating yourself. No person who fully loves and appreciates himself can ever look at someone else as less than themselves. The problem in this world is not the problem of hating our neighbor. The problem comes from not loving ourselves enough.

One of the ways that we don’t love ourselves enough is that we tell ourselves that being wealthy is a sin. I think that this is totally bass ackwards. (Yes, you read that right). Look at this way: You Are A Divine Child of the Universe PERIOD! Accepting anything less than that is a crime. In that same manner, if the POWER THAT CREATES WORLDS flows through you then accepting anything but happiness, health, prosperity, wealth and abundance in your life is the true sin!

I’m not talking about people who don’t know any better yet, like the world’s extreme poor. But you can’t help them until you help yourself first. How can you expect the world to change if you look on having wealth as a crime? When you look at the “filthy” rich and all you see is self-indulgence and something evil – you are dooming yourself and the world to live in poverty. Read the rest of this entry »
